Security Enhanced Linux Policy for the xguest_dbusd processes


Security-Enhanced Linux secures the xguest_dbusd processes via flexible mandatory access control.

The xguest_dbusd processes execute with the xguest_dbusd_t SELinux type. You can check if you have these processes running by executing the ps command with the -Z qualifier.

For example:

ps -eZ | grep xguest_dbusd_t


The xguest_dbusd_t SELinux type can be entered via the dbusd_exec_t file type.

The default entrypoint paths for the xguest_dbusd_t domain are the following:

/usr/bin/dbus-daemon(-1)?, /bin/dbus-daemon, /usr/bin/dbus-broker, /usr/bin/dbus-broker-launch, /lib/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper, /usr/lib/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper, /usr/libexec/dbus-1/dbus-daemon-launch-helper

Process Types

SELinux defines process types (domains) for each process running on the system

You can see the context of a process using the -Z option to psbP

Policy governs the access confined processes have to files. SELinux xguest_dbusd policy is very flexible allowing users to setup their xguest_dbusd processes in as secure a method as possible.

The following process types are defined for xguest_dbusd:


Note: semanage permissive -a xguest_dbusd_t can be used to make the process type xguest_dbusd_t permissive. SELinux does not deny access to permissive process types, but the AVC (SELinux denials) messages are still generated.


SELinux policy is customizable based on least access required.  xguest_dbusd policy is extremely flexible and has several booleans that allow you to manipulate the policy and run xguest_dbusd with the tightest access possible.

If you want to allow all domains to execute in fips_mode, you must turn on the fips_mode boolean. Enabled by default.

setsebool -P fips_mode 1

Managed Files

The SELinux process type xguest_dbusd_t can manage files labeled with the following file types.  The paths listed are the default paths for these file types.  Note the processes UID still need to have DAC permissions.
















semanage fcontext can also be used to manipulate default file context mappings.

semanage permissive can also be used to manipulate whether or not a process type is permissive.

semanage module can also be used to enable/disable/install/remove policy modules.

semanage boolean can also be used to manipulate the booleans

system-config-selinux is a GUI tool available to customize SELinux policy settings.
